Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes have got to be one of the greatest foods known to mankind! They are definitely one of my favorite foods.  Their taste is something unequivocal.  They present feelings of comfort, relaxation and welcome.  It doesn’t get much more homey than this.

This recipe is my favorite buttermilk pancake recipe of all time!  I tried several before creating this one and now I don’t know that I could ever use a different one again.  You may be weary of the oat flour in them, but trust me it makes these pancakes amazing!  It gives them a bit more flavor then you’d find in your average buttermilk pancake containing only all-purpose flour.  It also adds some amazing nutrition to them so you can feel great about eating them.  Also, by adding the blueberries in these pancakes you get two Superfoods (oats and blueberries)!  Maybe I should just call these the Incredible Superfood Pancakes because how could something that’s this healthy taste this good?  In my family we eat these pancakes every week, usually a Sunday brunch and many times even for dinner.  These pancakes are fancy and delicious enough to be worthy of a holiday brunch or for serving company.  Or, just make them a delectable new weekly tradition in your home, like I’ve done.
Also, note that these pancakes are better with actual oat flour rather than grinding your own in a food processor, if you are able to locate some.  The texture is slightly better then if you grind the oats yourself.
Also, these pancakes are delicious with raspberries, huckleberries, diced strawberries, sliced ripe bananas, cinnamon, and I’m soon going to be working on an apple version mmm. Enjoy, like you’ve never enjoyed a stack of pancakes before =)!

    I’m intrigued by the use of oat flour, I’ve never heard of it before. I’ve been on the look-out for a good pancake recipe recently, so this might be the answer – they look utterly delicious! :)

  • Katie

    Hm, I’ve never heard of oat flour before. But if they make the best pancakes, I guess I’ll have to give it try soon!

  • Kelly | Eat Yourself Skinny

    These look absolutely delicious and oh so gorgeous! :)

  • Meghann

    Thanks! I’ll definitely try them again. The flavor was great, the consistency was just off.

  • Jaclyn

    Meghann, yeah that has happened to me before. Working with oat flour is kind of tricky because its slightly fluffy compared to all-purpose flour so when you’re measuring it it seems hard to get the perfect measurement. I very gently pack it in just not tightly. Also, if it is still thinner than you’d like once in a while I will add in a few tablespoons of flour if I’m in the mood for thicker pancakes. Normally I like them pretty thin though. I hope that helps! This is my favorite pancake recipe though so I hope you can find the perfect consistency for you!
